Intro – what is this and why?
I strongly believe that to improve as a leader or at anything in this life you need to reflect on yourself. You need to be willing to dig up those failures and put them up on a wall to analyse what you did wrong, why you did it and what you could do better. This is what I plan on doing using this blog. Every week I am going to dive into my work as a leader and identify where I can improve. I will be honest in order to learn and to hopefully inspire others to learn and grow as well.
This week I was away in Scotland for a little midweek break. Edinburgh was amazing and I can definitely see myself going back again.
In the short time I spent working this week, I had the opportunity to delegate to someone I have slowly been moving up the delegation scale. They were able to take a piece of work and run with it. This also freed me up from some meetings to catch up with the week I missed!
Another great thing was some of the views I captured from Arthur’s Seat. Here’s one:
This week I didn’t spend enough time in learning. I had a busy week but that’s no excuse for poor time management. It is important to continuously be learning and growing. This week I didn’t prioritise my schedule correctly and therefore didn’t get to listen to my favourite podcasts or read some books or articles. I will plan my week better next week and ensure I prioritise the things that matter most.
